"It's no surprise to anyone who's met him or even listened thoughtfully to some of the greatest rock songs ever written that Robertson would be such an articulate and ingratiating tour guide through all this glorious and eventually tortured history."
- Chris Willman, Variety
Not Rated. (97 mins.) in English and in Romanian and Spanish
with English subtitles

"It revisits the energy and wit of heist movies before it, as well as the filmmaker's own structural sophistication in his previous works, and revitalizes both traditions in the process."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
Rated R. (108 mins.)


"To put it simply - and, yes, gratefully - Phoenix, Oregon is the sort of movie a lot of us need right now."
- Joe Leydon, Variety

"...a coming-of-middle-age tale, in a way. It's enjoyable and has this warm, upbeat energy in its best moments."
- Claudia Puig, FilmWeek
Academy Award Nominee!
CORPUS CHRISTI
Not Rated. (81 mins.)
in Polish with English subtitles


"This is a blistering drama, intense, disturbing and inescapably thought-provoking, a film that gets its power from a merging of potent opposites."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"One of the year's most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs." - Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com

"Fascinating, informative, educational and totally entertaining."

ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND

A heartwarming rock doc, ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND is a nostalgic, plucky ode!

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT MAGNOLIA PICTURES! 100% OF EACH TICKET PURCHASED GOES DIRECTLY TO SALEM CINEMA THROUGH 4/2!

United States. 2019. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg. (81 mins.) Not Rated.

A confessional, cautionary, and humorous tale of Robbie Robertson’s young life and the creation of The Band, one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music, this incredible documentary is the moving story of overcoming adversity and finding camaraderie. Daniel Roher's film draws you right into Robertson's orbit as he recounts his early formation, the talent, hard work and happy accidents that led to his fame with The Band, and the conflicts that consumed them. Rare archival images, Robertson's memory for detail and contributions from friends such as Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Martin Scorsese conjure up a glorious era of creativity and excess that can never quite be repeated. Through it all, the rhythm of Robertson's art hums — the yearning, the focus and the ability to dig inside himself for lyrics and music that could speak to stadiums. Offering unprecedented access to rock history, ONCE WERE BROTHERS tells the story of one remarkable Canadian's contribution to the music we now call Americana.

THE WHISTLERS

Playfully blending deadpan humor with intrigue and drama, THE WHISTLERS is a sly work of pulp fiction!

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT MAGNOLIA PICTURES! 100% OF EACH TICKET PURCHASED GOES DIRECTLY TO SALEM CINEMA THROUGH 4/2!

Romania/France/Germany/Sweden. 2019. Directed by Corneliu Porumboiu. (97 mins.) Not Rated. in English and in Romanian and Spanish with English subtitles

This deliriously stylish neo-noir from leading Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu is a clever, swift and wonderfully off-kilter film. Bucharest police detective Cristi, who plays both sides of the law, embarks on a high-stakes heist. When he arrives on the mist-enshrouded Canary Islands, he gets wind of a clandestine, tribal language, improbably made entirely out of whistling and must learn to navigate the twists and turns of corruption, treachery and deception in order to keep his superiors off his trail. THE WHISTLERS is a playful, exuberant crime thriller with a delightful twist.

PHOENIX, OREGON

PHOENIX, OREGON is a delightfully sweet parable filled with rich characters in a small town, all of whom remind us of the importance of community, friendship and forgiveness!

Although you may have seen this charmer when we played it at the theater last summer, we feel it's the very kind of heartwarming, hope-filled story that might have strong appeal during these troubling times. I couldn't recommend it more!

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT JOMA FILMS!

United States. 2019. Directed by Gary Lundgren. (108 mins.) Rated R.

FILMED IN OREGON! A charming and delightful tale filled with moments of startling clarity, PHOENIX, OREGON takes a comedic look at the existential crisis many face when trying to find meaning and relevance at midlife. Despite controlling bosses, dead-end jobs and broken relationships, Bobby and Carlos (veteran character actors James Le Gros and Jesse Borrego in the best roles of their careers) must awaken their hibernating courage and resilience in order to take new risks and keep their dream alive of restoring an old bowling alley and serving the world's greatest pizza. Radiating warmth and joy, this Oregon-based gem is the kind of movie that makes us remember exactly why we love movies.

All ticket purchases receive a one-time link to watch the movie at home + a free digital copy upon its official release this summer!

Hiding from his past by posing as a priest in a small Polish town, Daniel is, clandestinely, given the chance for spiritual redemption.
